big states: ohio, florida, and virginia. ohio being number one. i think florida is a republican state with 29 electoral votes and that is why they spent with ohio as 18 and that is why they have gone after the 13 electoral votes in virginia. hadn't gone democratic since 1964. linden banees johnson wanted it. sixty% he got in northern virginia. the bellweather counties or prince william and low den. he got 58% in prince william, in 2009, the republican mcdonald did very well in the southwest. the democrats are getting clobbered in cold country and they have to concentrate in getting out the african- american vote, which is very large, the same level of enthusiasm. i heard of all of the state battleground polls, this is a tie. it's going to be contested to the end. >> when you look at both of these campaigns tonight, the barack obama and mitt romney facades, when the staffers go to bed tonight, what is the biggest concern for obama and romney? >> the biggest concern for obama is independent voters neither democrats or republicans. romney was way ahead. you remember, tom, i discussed he

been wrong. >> they certainly have. the most famous instance, obviously, being in 2000, when florida was the devicive state between george bush and al gore. there were projections made, taken back, other projects made and taken back. that whole thing was frankly a fiasco. the networks are reluctant to get into that kind of situation again. >> what is the sign either campaign could be in trouble as they try to get tmagic number of 270? >> states that lean one way or another are expected to, like north carolina for romney or pennsylvania for obama. if either of those is very, very competitive, that is a sign of trouble. obviously ohio is a link pin in this election and both campaigns will be watching this -- a lynch pin and both states will be watching this debate. >> i don't know if you can extrapolate it to the local scene, but i know, perhaps, maryland, for example, their it's a heavily democratic state. there are a lot of issues on the ballot, the gay marriage and gambling. may dissuade republicans from voting because they feel the state's going to go toward president obama, anyway

early votings, specifically in florida, 43% were democrats and 43% republicans. a judge there is also extending early voting hours after a suspicious package shut down one of the polling stations for hours. more than 17,000 people in maryland alone casting their early ballots. the state set up 46 early voting centers. voting officials were criticized for not having enough machines or staff to accommodate those long lines. and they seemed to get mixed reviews from voters we spoke with to. >> should have early voting. makes it easier for everyone to get to the polls. >> i want to vote on tuesday. i want to be part of the whole tuesday voting experience. get my sticker, walk around. i want the whole thing. >> polls will be open all day tomorrow in dc and maryland. and in virginia, voters can cast ballots between 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. all ballots will be announced after the polls closed at 8:00 p.m. she wants to be part of the day. i understand that. >> thank you so much. tony. >> all right. thank you very much. as parts of the northeast continue to recover from super storm sandy, there is

, florida, virginia as well. >> let me ask you. we know the president gave his acceptance speech in chicago there four years ago. what is the plan for tomorrow night? however this ends up, will they be in the same area for the acceptance speech or for the, i can't think of my word, the concession speech tomorrow? >> right. the speech is here. recall four years ago, a huge outdoor venue where people came streaming in and it was so strangely warm in 2008, a warm day, 70 degrees and that is chilly, of course. inside the venue, where there is some supporters and they'll be invited, volunteers, and some members of the public smaller compared to grant park and it's still a large inside venue and that is going to be quite the event here. >> and you mentioned people being invited. this is not just open to the public then. everyone can't go down like they did four years ago? >> right. you will have to have a way to get in. there is a public area inside the venues. and i am sure most of the people were handpicked already. there is tons and tons of staff and volunteers given a place inside. >> all rig

, and if he wins virginia, florida, ohio, colorado or new hampshire, he'll be the next president. i think the president at this moment has a little bit better chance in the electoral college. >> i can't offer to shave my mustache when we win ohio, but i think that will happen. but i think in virginia you'll get a close race, one way or the other. i think you've seen tim kaine pull away from allen and made the case for himself as tough decisions he's had to make as governor. that will be a key senate race to watch, not just for where the commonwealth goes, but could control the senate. i think that's trending in a good direction for tim kaine. >> let me get your thoughts as well, looks like if you look at the poll numbers, kaine has pulled ahead of allen. do you think he has a shot? >> if obama wins virginia two or 3-points lease likely to -- he's likely to drag mr. allen across. allens a polls say he's up one. i think this will be a nail biter race like the presidential race. i think it could be a possible split. if there was a split in the vote, i think the better vote would be romney/ka
